Improving Outcomes in DM :
Announcing Our Newly Revised Course Improving Outcomes in Diabetes Mellitus

The purpose of the new Diabetes course is to apply evidence-based grounding skills to educate case managers in the latest Diabetes care standards, especially in the areas of risk assessment, treatment strategies and overall life-long management of this chronic disease patient population. Special focus is given to case management skills related to effective contributions to multidisciplinary care teams and equipping the patient with self-management skills to effectively prevent hospital readmissions.

Coming Soon: Behavioral Health: Harm Risk Behaviors & Suicide Prevention

This widely requested, updated version of the Behavioral Health: Harm Risk course is nearly completed and scheduled for release later this month. The purpose of Improving Outcomes in Harm-Risk Behaviors & Suicide Prevention is to educate case managers so they are aware of early warning signs and empowered to intervene and support the efforts of other transdisciplinary team members, including other health care professionals, patients and families. This week we are reminding case managers of World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD) which occurs yearly in September. This year it is September 10. You can link to WSPD via this address: http://www.iasp.info/wspd/.
